CAMBRIDGE, Md. – Governor Larry Hogan had a busy schedule Friday here on the eastern shore. After some time spent at a local elementary school, Governor Hogan visited the Hyatt vaccination site to tour the facility and thank workers for adding yet another place for vaccines.

The vaccine site, in cooperation with the Hyatt regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort looks out on the water and gives those eligible, another place to be vaccinated.

With the demand for vaccines and low amount of supply, Governor Hogan says the state is working as hard as it can to get people vaccinated when possible. He notes, the more vaccines that are made available the more sites like this one will be open for others to continue to become vaccinated.

“The federal plan and the state plan is to take advantage of the great teams that we have in our local health departments but to also get as many distribution points as possible so we can get them in as fast as we can,” says Governor Hogan. “I can tell you everyone at the federal state and local level are working together on, it really is an all hands on deck.”

The governor also say, he hopes once vaccines are available, the Hyatt will open their ballroom for a larger vaccine site, and get more in to be vaccinated.
